From a great Bordeaux Vintage, 2016, deep purple robe with black hints. The nose is complex and discreet and the bouquet will further develop upon ageing. Notes of underwood, spices and pencil lead are delicately woven together. Assertive on the palate, this full-bodied wine shows great persistence and rich flavours. Lafite’s 2016 Pauillac can be enjoyed now or cellared for another 5 to 7 years.
